Yeah, it’s that time – and just as threatened last week, we’re playing indie music. Yes, indie music. Or whatever. Music recorded by independent artists.

Whatever comes to mind when you think “indie”, forget it. This is going to be a selection of awesome stuff that you’ve maybe never heard before or maybe it’s your favourite song by your favourite band that nobody listens to or appreciates or something.

I don’t know about you, but barbecuing just begs for music. Personally, I (Chris) will barbecue to anything from reggae or afrobeat to dubstep or hip hop, but I think most people in our neck of the woods would generally agree that barbecuing is best done with a little bit of heavy rock nearby. Something about meat and distorted guitars. I don’t know. It’s just great.

Even though we’re not on the air until 11:00 PM, don’t let that disuade you from firing up that grill and turning on some tunes. Time of day has little bearing on delicious grilled food or when you choose to listen to your favourite program on CJTR. Warm up that grill at 10:45 and start cooking with Operation Manatee from 11:00 to midnight.
